The Witcher 3 Notebook Benchmarks

Heavyweight. The third part of the fantasy saga based on the sorcerer Geralt is now in front of us. The story and graphics of the game promises to eclipse the RPG competition. However, we are more interested in the game performance on notebooks. What system is needed for what settings?
Apple MacBook 12 (Early 2015) 1.1 GHz Review

88% Apple MacBook 12 (Early 2015) 1.1 GHz Review

The art of omission. Sometimes less is more, which is what Apple probably thought when they designed the ultramobile MacBook 12. Besides unnecessary weight, they also removed (almost) all the ports. A radical concept that won't suit everybody – and inspire some.

Dell Inspiron 13 and Inspiron 13 Special Edition Convertible Review

79% Dell Inspiron 13 and Inspiron 13 Special Edition Convertible Review

Update with a catch. Dell updated its 13.3-inch convertible with the latest technology. Besides the new Broadwell processor you still get a 360-degree hinge as well as a touchscreen. The most noticeable change, however, is the louder fan.

Face Off: Aorus X3 Plus vs. Gigabyte P34W vs. Razer Blade 14

Small brawl with powerful punches. Don't let their small footprints fool you — these high-end 14-inch gaming notebooks carry big guns with more firepower than competitors almost twice the size. If you're in the market for an ultraportable powerhouse, the bottom line will almost certainly come down to one of these three.
HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

78% HP Stream 13 Notebook Review

Chromebook rival. If users do not find the color of the Stream 13 appealing, they will at least find the inner values attractive. Its silent operation, long battery life, and low price make HP's laptop interesting. A one-year license for MS Office 365 Personal is also included.

MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

86% MSI GT70 (GTX 970M) Notebook Review

Gigantic with drawbacks. As expected from MSI's GT lineup, we meet uncompromising readiness to perform. The update of the GT70 is faster and in some cases even cheaper. However, the weaknesses found in the old tests, unfortunately, have not been eliminated.

Asus GL771JW Notebook Review

86% Asus GL771JW Notebook Review

Turbo SSD. Decent gaming performance is expected from a gaming laptop. Asus' GL771JW fulfills this, and the laptop even pleases/surprises with a super-fast SSD (PCI Express x4). It also features a screen that offers 90% sRGB coverage.

89% Lenovo ThinkPad T450s Ultrabook Review

Let the games begin! Equipped with an Nvidia GeForce 940M, the ThinkPad T450s can cope with 3D applications and games - and that for a relatively low extra charge. Thanks to a 96 Wh battery capacity, record-breaking runtimes should be possible.

85% Aorus X3 Plus v3 Notebook Review

Size doesn't matter. It may be less than 14-inches, but the Aorus X3 Plus still performs just as well as many larger gaming models currently available. What compromises must buyers make for this 3200 x 1800 QHD+ 13.9-inch notebook with 3x RAID 0 and GTX 970M graphics?

HP 15 2015 Notebook Review

75% HP 15 2015 Notebook Review

Average. The HP 15 is a simple office laptop for home use. The laptop does not shine in any area, except the CPU, but it does offer a decent package. Sadly, the manufacturer has left a lot of room for complaint.

HP EliteBook 850 G2 Notebook Review

86% HP EliteBook 850 G2 Notebook Review

Quality has its price. HP demands almost 2,000 Euros (~$2289) for its top model of the EliteBook 850 series - in return the customer receives a brilliantly manufactured business laptop with an impressive configuration. Ultimately it is the minor weaknesses that prevent the laptop from ascending the top of its appliance class.

HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 Convertible Review

85% HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 Convertible Review

Even better thanks to Broadwell. The HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G3 can basically be described as a Broadwell upgrade of its predecessor. However, the processor alone suffices to improve the convertible: More power and significantly improved battery runtimes are what the device has to offer.

HP ProBook 455 G2 Notebook Review

76% HP ProBook 455 G2 Notebook Review

You get what you pay for. HP demands less than 400 Euros (~$446) for the basic configuration of its ProBook 455 G2, which recommends it for entering the world of semi-professional office laptops. Unfortunately, the weak hardware slows down the user far too often.
